You see, I read the book, long before the movie ever came out and I just didn’t enjoy it.
I read it, but by the end I just thought “Oh, is that it?” – to me it just seemed to fizzle out.
And when the film came out and I said that I didn’t fancy watching it because the book had not inspired me to see it, people said “oh, but the film is amazing, you have to watch it just for the special effects!”
My dilemma is that the local film society are showing it this week – and I’m quite tempted to go, just to see if it is as spectacular as everyone says it is, despite me actually being bored by the book!
What would you do?
OMG! I love this film. I can’t remember when I first saw it, but it was long before ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ came out.
It is guaranteed to make me blub several times, so a big box of tissues is always required.
Yes, it is a total chick flick.
I don’t know if men get this movie – maybe if there are any men out there who have seen it, could let me know I’d be ever so grateful.
It is very dated by today’s rom-com standards, but it still tells the story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy finds girl again – with a twist – effused with old-style Hollywood glamour.
I always wanted to go on a cruise to New York in the hope I might meet my very own Cary Grant, go shopping and get all glammed up to then meet him at the top of the Empire State Building – it ‘being the closest thing to heaven they have in New York’ 😉 – heck a girl can dream can’t she 😉
Might have to dig the movie out and watch it tomorrow?
Shopping list for Tuesday – 1 box of tissues…LARGE 😉
